Atari 2600 Darth Vader Console

Just got an Atari 2600 Darth Vader Console from E-bay. I can not get it to work. I checked the power cord and that is working. I just can't tell if the Console is getting electricity because I can not find a on light on the unit. I plugged it into the TV and put in games and such but I am getting nothing. The seller on E-bay said everything was in almost mint condition and functioning. What am I doing wrong? Is it the tv?

Help!

My son just got a atari 2600 console but it will not power up swap the 9 volt and still not power up


Well put it this way yes it a power system failure to fix this problem you basiclly will have to install a new mother board for the console from another atari 2600 console like from ebay. If you find a crappy atari 2600 console with a working motherboard you might just be able to switch it and I fix NES SNES N64 sega gamecube and atari 2600 consoles too. This has a high probility of not working if you don't know what to do or on how to fix it. 8 out of 10 it might not work after this.

I have the hook up for my old Atari 2600 but it won't work how can you text to see if power cord or something else is broken


Well you could try and buy a new cable to see if it makes a difference or not.
If still no luck with a new video cable then it is an internal
issue with the console.

Atari 2600 Console Power Adapter


The Atari 2600 adapter has the following information on it:

Input: 120V AC 60Hz 12W

Output: 9V DC 500mA

Positive tip


Make sure you test the power supply before you use it. I have 2 original atari power supplies, and they are both putting out about 15V DC, which may be why my atari's aren't working anymore!
